Brooke is a local freelancer and dumpling aficionado based in Allston. As an undergrad at Boston University, she’s written extensively for the Boston Globe, Boston Magazine, and various local food blogs. She loves chatting with chefs, lying on hardwood floors after big meals, and walking around unknown neighborhoods with food in her hands. She also has a complicated relationship with burritos, and an unhealthy obsession with Jamaica Plain. One time, a waiter in Atlanta told her she had an exquisite palate -- she’s referenced it in job interviews ever since.
